Just a small point: I downloaded an encrypted ColdFusion custom tag once, which on further inspection was coded to send an email to the author every time it was invoked! I don't use code add-ons like that any more unless I can inspect the code and verify what's going on. It's a trust issue, as all Open Source/Closed Source issues ultimately are. It's not about free vs commercial (in this case). Try opening your source code - you might like it! (And others may be able to help you improve your code). Nothing prevents you from still charging for your software. Sorry this is a bit OT, and I don't intend to start a flame war, but I thought it would be a useful consideration.
